Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature
This is a book about farm animals, and what happens during one year on Maple Hill Farm in New York. In January, the cows stay in the barnyard, and the chickens don't lay many eggs. Month by month, the animals and the people who care for them respond to the changing seasons. Not only do the authors talk about the "typical" farm animals¾cows, horses, chickens, goats and cats¾but they include the grasshoppers and blue flies as well. It is the best way to experience and learn about the work, play, challenges and rewards of living in farm country without an actual visit. 2001, Aladdin Paperbacks, $6.99, $5.00 and $4.75. Ages 4 to 8. Reviewer: Julie Eick Granchelli
